Caesarean Suture Wounds Discharge Brown With Lumps?
I just gave birth to the second cesarean, so my link is right and left, it looks like a brown liquid, there is a lump under the link, it’s normal or not.
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Caesarean section is an operation performed when a baby is unlikely to be born through normal delivery, and this can be caused by a variety of things, it can be due to the mother's narrow pelvis or the baby is too large, disturbances in the placenta or placenta, abnormal position of the baby, etc. so. This procedure is carried out by slicing one by one the mother's stomach lining from the skin, fat, various layers of muscle, to finally reach the uterus, cutting the uterus, removing the baby, and one by one the layers are closed again.
Judging from the summary of the processes we mentioned, it is easy to understand that there is a lot of potential bleeding that can occur. That is why in each layer of suturing that is performed during the operation, the doctor must ensure that suturing is not only done to close the previously created tear, but also in such a way that bleeding does not last too long or causes problems with blood deposition in the abdominal cavity. But of course, there may still be a small amount of bleeding and tissue that escapes during the process, which is most likely the origin of the brown liquid you are referring to.
Regarding the lump, this requires a direct examination to find out whether the lump arises from the skin, from under the skin and is related or not to your history of cesarean section. Therefore, to avoid misunderstanding, we suggest that you control your stitches with the doctor who treats you, because by seeing it directly, the doctor will more easily determine whether a condition is dangerous or not, and whether it requires further treatment or not.
Meanwhile, keep the area of the operation dry by wiping away any fluid that comes out, and don't apply anything without a doctor's advice. If then the fluid that comes out is more and more, or there is excruciating pain or other things that seem urgent, do not hesitate to have your condition checked directly to the nearest hospital emergency room. So, hopefully it answers your question.
